Adios Elder Boyce!

This morning we made an early drive to the airport to say goodbye to KC. He's headed straight for the MTC in Argentina and, after a couple of months of perfecting his Spanish and learning the ropes of being a missionary, he'll land in Uruguay.
We've had so much fun with KC, the last few weeks especially, knowing that this day was coming. I think he was ready to go about a week after he got his mission call. He's definitely had his fill of good-byes. As far as brothers-in-law go, KC and Tyler are honestly some of the best. They're another one of the many reasons I love being a Boyce. And KC, well, he's going to be a great missionary.

Back to today...there were hugs all around and then up the escalator he went. I can't wait for two years from now when we're all standing waiting for him to come down that escalator!

For the sake of family who wasn't able to join in the good-bye this morning, here's a few more pictures of the event. We can't wait for that Christmas phone call in six months!
It just wouldn't be KC without a few goofy pictures, right?

I can't believe it! It seems like yesterday that KC and I were swimming in the pool singing random songs and goofing around.

What a funny kid he is. He will make a terrific missionary!

time passes all to quickly, well I guess it depends on what it is you are waiting for. but two years will go by so fast it will seem like he just left and he will be back. and I agree he will make an awesome missionary.
